Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump campaign is now in a free fall following a leaked 2005 video recording which has shown footage of him engaging in lewd and crass comments about women.
The readersbureau.com published below a transcript of the footage that has now put Trump’s campaign in a tailspin.
Donald Trump: You know and I moved on her actually. You know she was down on Palm Beach.
Unknown: She used to be great. She’s still very beautiful.
Trump: I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and f*** her. She was married.
Unknown: That’s huge news.
Trump. No, no, Nancy. This was— And I moved on her very heavily in fact. I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture. I took her out furniture. I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there, and she was married.
Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big, phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.
[The men spot Arianne Zucker waiting for them outside the bus]
Bush: Sheesh, your girl’s hot as shit. In the purple.
Trump: Whoa! Yes! Whoa!
Unknown: Yes! The Donald has scored. Whoa, my man!
Trump: Look at you. You are a pussy.
[crosstalk as the bus doors open and close – Trump is still on the bus]
Trump: Maybe it’s a different one.
Bush: It better not be the publicist. No, it’s her. It’s —
Trump: Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful – I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.
And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.
Bush: Whatever you want.
Trump: Grab them by the p****. You can do anything.
Bush: Yeah those legs, all I can see is the legs.
Trump: Oh, it looks good.
Bush: Come on, shorty.
Trump: Oh, nice legs, huh?
Bush: Oof, get out of the way, honey. Oh, that’s goo legs. Go ahead.
Trump: It’s always good if you don’t fall out of the bus. Like Ford, Gerald Ford, remember?
[Trump knocks on the bus door to get out]
Bush: Down below. Pull the handle.
Trump: Hello. How are you? Hi.
Arianne Zucker: Hi Mr. Trump. How are you?
Trump: Nice seeing you. Terrific, terrific. You know Billy Bush?
Bush: Hello, nice to see you. How you doing, Arianne?
Zucker: I’m doing very well, thank you. Are you ready to be a soap star?
Trump: We’re ready, let’s go. Make me a soap star.
Bush: How about a little hug for the Donald? He just got off the bus.
Zucker: Would you like a little hug, darling?
Trump: Absolutely. Melania said this was okay.
Bush: How about a little hug for the Bushy? I just got off the bus. Here we go. Excellent. Well, you’ve got a nice co-star here.
Trump: Good. After you. Come on, Billy, don’t be shy.
[The three of them start walking towards the set]
Bush: Soon as a beautiful woman shows up he just, he takes off. This always happens.
Let the little guy in here, come on.
Zucker: Yeah let the little guy in. How you feel now? Better? I should actually be in the middle.
Bush: it’s hard to walk next to a guy like this. Yeah, you get in the middle. There we go.
Zucker: This is much better. This is—
Trump: That’s better.
Bush: Now, if you had to choose honestly between one of us. Me or the Donald?
Trump: I don’t know, that’s rough competition. That’s some pressure right there.
Bush: Seriously, you had to take one of us as a date.
Zucker: I have to take the Fifth on that one. Yep. I’ll take both
Trump has since dismissed the foregoing comments as “locker room banter” made over a decade ago and expressed regrets as well as apologized.
